    I guess it was a nice book back in last century, but it is absolutely horrible now. TBH, I dont think it was about the law of jungle, rather it's law of human. I’m not sure if someone feels the same, but the anthropocentrism make me sick so I swear I’ll never open this book again. I stopped at page 100 and just can’t keep reading it. Just think about it, by what right does a 10-year-old human child have the power to scare off all other creatures through a stare in the eye?

    It is a very nice book to read but it has got three problems, one is that it has to many pages and that it has no pictures and that it isn't a free audiobook.

    If you haven't read this book then please find time to do so. It's amazing to read Kipling's observations of human and animal behaviour especially during that era . It evokes the Far East and the lifestyle of those both native and foreign. Remarkable observation and narration. I knew of Jungle book and knew some of the characters and promised myself I would read it all one day. Make yourself the same promise...and keep it.
